Why Should You Consider Whitening Your Teeth?
As we get older, our teeth often become discolored, simply due to use. Lifestyle choices – like smoking marijuana or smoking/chewing tobacco – can stain the teeth. So can certain foods and beverages, particularly coffee, tea, wine, and soda. Genetics can also play a role in how dazzlingly white your teeth stay over time.
While some people don’t mind stained, discolored teeth, others experience a loss of confidence. They’re embarrassed to smile and expose their teeth.
Your Cerritos dentist doesn’t want dull, discolored teeth to hold you back. Teeth whitening in Cerritos is a safe, fast way to get a brighter smile you can’t wait to share with the world.
What Is Zoom! Teeth Whitening?
Zoom! teeth whitening is a procedure that is done in our Cerritos dentist office. The system combines the use of a special gel and an ultraviolet light to dramatically whiten your teeth in only about an hour.
How does it work? We start by making sure your teeth are nice and clean. Then, we isolate and dry them. After that, we apply the whitening gel to the teeth. An ultraviolet light activates the gel, which is applied three times for 15 minutes each time.
During this session, your teeth can get up to eight shades lighter! After your whitening treatment, your Cerritos dentist will apply a desensitizing gel for added comfort.
What Is Traditional Whitening?
Traditional whitening utilizes whitening gel and custom trays that you can use in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
You’ll place the gel into the trays and wear them for two to four hours every day. It takes about two weeks to see significant results.
